What do our children want to be when they grow up? Alive.

Whilst governments continue to say, 'Global warming is so serious we'll have to talk about it some more' nothing is happening. In one breath they're suggesting green taxes for air travel, with the next they're supporting more runways and ever bigger airports. Planning permissions for windfarms is refused because the nimbys think they spoil the view, I wonder how much they'll like the view when the UK is a desert or an ice field? Renewable energy remains massively under funded but the government wants to spend billions on producing more nuclear waste that they have no idea what to do with in power stations that are a prime target for anyone with a grudge and are not carbon neutral. The uranium still has to be mined, processed, and shipped, all using carbon burning machinery, and you won't find uranium mines in the UK which means we're still dependent on other countries for our power, which is unacceptable.

I don't care if people can afford to fly to Tenerife or not. I don't care if wind farms are pretty or not. I care about my grandchildren.

Government - Stop yapping, start doing.
